Google and Diversity in Tech

On today’s show, hosts Brian Edwards-Tiekert and Cat Brooks talk about diversity at Google, and in tech more broadly – and take your calls.  Google is the midst of a blow-up over an internal memo circulated by one of its engineers suggesting the reason so few women work there might have something to do with how their brains work. Before that, we dive into a conversation with Mitch Jeserich about the ongoing North Korea situation and the FBI raid of former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort.
